Administrative spaces are often a challenge for arts groups as rental can be costly. The Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) offers art spaces within our premises in the central business district for arts companies, associations and societies with an interest in Singapore Chinese culture to be used for administrative purposes. By coming together under one roof, various arts groups can also find opportunities for collaboration with SCCC and each other.
The arts spaces are available under the following two schemes:
(I) Scheme for SCCC Arts Housing
This Scheme is targeted at established practising arts companies, associations and societies with an interest in Singapore Chinese culture. The applicant should have 6 or more years of practice, and a track record of activities and artistic growth.
Yearly Review for each Tenancy Cycle Applicants for the scheme are subject to a yearly review during each tenancy cycle. At the end of the second year of the first cycle, both parties shall reach a mutual agreement on whether to extend the lease for another 3 years.
The reserve rental rate is at least $2.50/psf which includes a maintenance fee of $1/psf (for payment of utilities, security and cleaning).
(II) Scheme for SCCC Arts Incubation
